Nineteen people including two small children were killed when a bus veered over the side of a bridge and overturned onto a frozen river in Russia today. 

A total of 43 passengers and the driver were on the bus when it careered 22ft into the Kuenga River in Transbaikal region of Siberia, 3,930 miles east of Moscow.

A further 21 people were injured in the incident and had to be cut out of the vehicle as it came to rest upside down on the thick ice.

Horrific pictures and video show the scene of the crash as frantic rescue efforts continued after dark on Sunday.
